Carl-Philipp-Emanuel-Bach-Chor Hamburg

The Carl-Philipp-Emanuel-Bach-Chor
is Hamburg’s celebrated concert choir.
 
The choir sings both oratorio and a cappella programmes and has a wide-ranging repertoire stretching from (pre-)-Baroque music to contemporary compositions. It comprises some 80 singers. Formally, the choir has no permanently appointed artistic director; it works together with Hansjörg Albrecht, conductor of the Münchener Bach-Chor, in an open-end agreement. Albrecht will conduct the majority of the concerts organized by the choir. These take place as a rule in the Hamburg Laeiszhalle or one of the main Hamburg churches. Thanks to cooperation agreements, e.g. with the Hamburger Symphoniker (symphony orchestra) and the Lübeck Philharmonic Orchestra, the choir frequently sings under other conductors. Since 2005 these have included Philippe Jordan, Andrey Boreyko, Jeffrey Tate, Ralf Weikert, Roman Brogli-Sacher and Peter Ruzicka.

In particular, the choir has become known to a wide public through its Christmas concerts, which combine music and readings of texts for Advent and Christmas. This tradition, which goes back to many concerts with Heinz Rühmann, has been continued by the choir with readings by Uwe Friedrichsen, Otto Sander and Senta Berger.
